    Schrader Valve Blow-Out. Compressor or Mighty Vac????

    Does anybody know if an attachment can be made to use a mighty vac to connect to a schrader vavle for blowing out the lines? Is this only a compressor specific thing,....or could a mighty vac be used in this situation as well?

    Re: Schrader Valve Blow-Out. Compressor or Mighty Vac????

    Making one would be easy. But I seriously doubt any Shop-Vac/Mighty-Vac/blower type machine could generate the pressure to get much air through the very small aperture of a Shrader valve. Those machines are good at large volumes at low pressure, and getting air through a small valve opening needs very high pressure.
